Project HELP: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
With increases in school shootings, the prevalence of natural disasters, and veterans returning from war, our society is keenly aware of the suffering produced by trauma. During the years 2014-2016, we will explore Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a diagnosable mental disorder as classified by the DSM-V. Some key facts about PTSD include the following: PTSD is a diagnosable mental health disorder that must be diagnosed by a professional. PTSD is caused by certain events such as sexual abuse, natural disasters, serious accidents, participating in war, etc. Anyone is susceptible to PTSD after a traumatic event. PTSD is experienced around the world, though women are twice as likely to develop PTSD as men. Some research suggests this is due to the fact that women are more likely to experience interpersonal trauma than men. Please check back for more information about praying for those affected by PTSD.
